Life Through My Lens: Connecting the Dots of Life

April 08, 2015  •  1 Comment

 

Life is full of randomness, and once in a while, all those random happenings seem not so random.  You hear people say, "It's a small world," or that there are only "six degrees of separation" between any two people here on earth.  Well, today, it all seemed to come together for me.  The dots connected.  

Last month I met artist Ann Schaefer at Gallery 322 on a First Saturday.  She had painted a beautiful picture of a field in Nanticoke, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, near to where I used live.  We talked about Nanticoke, painting, photography, and of course, Easels in Frederick.  I told her I am one of the co-chairs.  She told me how much she loves the Facebook page I maintain for Easels.

Waiting for SpringWaiting for Spring Shortly after that conversation, I posted on the Facebook page about an opportunity to enter a juried art exhibit featuring covered bridges and barns.  If you follow my Facebook posts, you'll know I had three photos of barns accepted into that very show, and that over the weekend, I made a trip to Doylestown, PA, to deliver the art.

Yesterday, I got a call from The Artists' Gallery, also in downtown Frederick, letting me know that one of my light paintings, "Cans & Caliper," was sold over the weekend.  I was thrilled to make a sale!

Now I'll get back to Ann Schaefer.  She called me today, to thank me for posting the announcement about the covered bridges and barns, because she also had a piece accepted into the show.  She drove to Doylestown on April 3, but did the drive there and back in one day, in order to be at Gallery 322 for this weekend's First Saturday.

A young woman who frequents Gallery 322 came by Saturday and talked to Ann.  Her parents were visiting her in Frederick for Easter, and she introduced them.  It turns out they are from Doylestown, PA.  They know the Rich Timmons Studio and Gallery where our barns are being exhibited, and will plan to see the show.

Cans & CaliperCans & Caliper This couple from Doylestown asked Ann how she had heard about the exhibit, so Ann told them that Cam Miller had posted the call for entry on the Easels in Frederick Facebook page.  That evoked a smile from the man, who was holding a matted print he had just purchased.  Yep, you guessed it.  He had just bought "Cans & Caliper" at The Artists' Gallery.

Small world?  Six degrees of separation?  All just amazing coincidence?  Call it what you like.  To me, it's all the same -- wonderful, marvelous, connected dots.
